San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick has one year left on his contract, but the quarterback is the top domino who will affect the other 49ers' pending free agents. If Kaepernick and the team work a deal this offseason, it will obviously affect team's ability to re-sign players set test the open market.

Does LaMichael James want out of San Francisco? His series of cryptic tweets on Thursday may hold the answer.
First, there was this:
Innocent enough, right? Well, a few hours later, the second-year running back escalated things in a hurry.
According to Larry Hartstein of CBS Sports, San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin is an integral part of the 49ers offense, and there's a 75 percent chance the soon to be free agent re-signs with the team.
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will be entering the final year of his contract and he knows it's a very important focal point for him and the team. He understands breaking the bank for him will result a ripple effect on the team, however, he wants to get paid fairly for his services.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick believes Peyton Manning and the Broncos can take advantage of the Seahawks “weak” nickel defense.
On thing I left out of my Colin Kaepernick story: He said the Seahawks' nickel defense is weak and can definitely be exploited by Peyton.

I’m not sure how weak Seattle’s nickel defense is...
Before anybody talks about draft needs, it’s far more accurate to discuss “offseason needs.”
The 49ers have exclusive negotiating rights until March 8 with each of their scheduled free agents. The draft is a full two months later.
So we can talk all about draft needs right now, but things will change in the 3 ½ months before the draft gets going.
Typically, free agents...
Now that the 49ers offseason is roughly a week in following their loss at Seattle, it is time to look at the different areas of the team and the league that could define the future of the team. In the next four articles I will be discussing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of, for, and to this team.
In this article, I will be looking at the current strengths...
Colin Kaepernick is notorious for being short and not-very-sweet with the media. But when the topic turned to Richard Sherman today talking to various Super Bowl media in New York, Kaepernick held nothing back. You can tell this dude plain doesn’t like Sherman.
Here’s a roundup of some of what was said:
On Sherman calling Michael Crabtree “mediocre”:
“I feel like it was...
When the Seahawks are in their nickel defense on Sunday, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is going to find mismatches he can exploit.
That’s the word from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who told Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post that the Seahawks’ nickel defense is weak and can be beaten by Manning in the Super Bowl.
“Playmakers Denver has on offense are better than...
San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker, Patrick Willis, had surgery to repair his injured left thumb, reports Josh Alper of NBCSports. The busted digit kept Willis from playing in this year's Pro-Bowl.Willis took to Instagram to post pictures of the cast on his left hand, which is the result of recent thumb surgery. It is unclear when Willis injured his thumb. Willis was...
It’s been a little over a week since Richard Sherman made that glorious NFC Championship-ending tip play, sending the 49ers packing, and immediately confronted Michael Crabtree, only to be shoved away in the face by his nemesis. Since then, Sherman has had time to reflect on his actions, and he’s come to the conclusion that, ya know, maybe getting in the face of Crabtree, in...
Here we go….
After keeping quiet on Richard Sherman’s post game rant, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick showed up at the Super Bowl XLVIII media center in Midtown, New York and completely unloaded on Richard Sherman to the New York Posts’ Bart Hubbuch.
We’ll take each portion of Kaepernick’s comments regarding Sherman one by one. First, he gives his opinion on Sherman’s...

Colin Kaepernick is scheduled to count just $1.63 million against the salary cap for the San Francisco 49ers in 2014 but an extension this offseason could allow him to be compensated closer to other franchise quarterbacks who made $16 million or more.
Of course Kaepernick is hoping that a new contract for himself does not prevent the 49ers from addressing other...
On Sunday, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will square off in Super Bowl XLVIII, with two dedicated fan bases tuning in to root for their team like they do every week. Both groups are worthy of being happy by day’s end, as their ability to stick with their team through thick and thin deserves a positive outcome.
The same can’t be said for every fan base in the NFL. Some...
Colin Kaepernick is still a little salty about Richard Sherman’s post-NFC Championship Game antics.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback unloaded on the Seattle Seahawks cornerback to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post while in New York for Super Bowl XLVIII. Kaepernick had yet to respond to Sherman flashing a choke sign at Kaepernick after the playoff matchup.
Sherman broke up a...
